IPL 2024: Riyan Parag's Magnificent 84 Sets Up Rajasthan Royals' 12-Run Win Over Delhi Capitals | Cricket News

Young Riyan Parag showed why he is considered a precocious talent when he hit a whopping 84 not out off 45 balls to set up a 12-run win for Rajasthan Royals against Delhi Capitals in their IPL match in Jaipur on Thursday. Sent into bat, RR were reduced to 36 for 3 in the eighth over, but 22-year-old Parag single-handedly took the home side to 185 for 5 with a stunning unbeaten knock studded with seven fours and six sixes.

Parag, who was promoted to No. 4 by the team management this season and made 43 in the previous match, took 25 runs off experienced South African pacer Anrich Nortje with scores of 4, 4, 6, 4, 6, 1 in the final. to achieve his highest T20 score.

Chasing 186 for a win, DC could only manage 173 for 5 in 20 overs, although South African youngster Tristan Stubbs (44 not out from 23 balls) kept them in the hunt until the final, from which they needed 17 runs.

Avesh Khan conceded just four runs and helped RR win their second consecutive match.

South African pacer Nandre Burger and Yuzvendra Chahal took two wickets each to also contribute to the RR win.

“Definitely disappointed. The best thing you can do from here is learn from it. The bowlers did well during the 15-16 overs. But the batters did well at the death, hopefully we do better in the next game,” says DC skipper Rishabh. said Broek.

DC were reduced to 34 for 2 in the fourth over, with Burger taking two wickets in three balls in a fine display of fast bowling.

Burger, who was brought in as Impact Sub for Shimron Hetmyer, dismissed opener Mitchell Marsh (23 off 12 balls) and Ricky Bhui (0) in the fourth over.

DC captain Rishabh Pant came to bat at the fall of Bhui’s wicket and, along with senior batsman David Warner, built the innings without taking too much risk. Delhi were 89 for 2 at the half.

Warner was the more aggressive one because he was able to push the boundaries to keep DC on the hunt. The senior Australian batsman fell one run short of his fifty thanks to a brilliant diving catch by Sandeep Sharma off Avesh’s bowling in the 12th over.

Warner and Pant were involved in a crucial 67-run partnership for the third wicket.

In his 100th IPL match and 14 months after a horrific car accident, Pant tried to build the innings with occasional boundaries. But he got out for a 26-ball 28 when Chahal produced a weak bottom edge for Sanju Samson to do the rest behind the stumps in the 14th over.

The asking rate shot up to over 13 runs per over and DC needed 66 from the last five overs.

Stubbs kept DC in the match with two consecutive sixes off Ravichandran Ashwin in the 17th over, but the Delhi side ultimately fell 12 runs short.

They needed 34 runs from the last two overs, which they could not achieve. It was DC’s second straight loss.

Earlier, Parag shared 54 and 52 runs with Ravichandran Ashwin (29) and Dhruv Jurel (20) respectively after RR made a shaky start.

Royals captain Samson hit three successive boundaries in the fourth over bowling from pacer Mukesh Kumar before taking a Khaleel Ahmed delivery to Pant two overs later and getting out for 15.

RR were then 30 for 2 as Mukesh had given DC their first breakthrough with the wicket of Yashasvi Jaiswal (5).

The Royals found themselves in further trouble after wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav literally forced his captain Pant to undergo a review, which later proved successful, to dismiss Englishman Jos Buttler for an LBW decision.

Ashwin came to bat at number five and he scored a Kuldeep delivery for a six to help RR reach 58 for 3 at the mid-stage. He gave Nortje even harsher treatment with two sixes in the next over that earned 15 runs.

However, Ashwin holed out to Tristan Stubbs near the boundary ropes for a 19-ball 29.

Parag then made his presence felt by hitting two boundaries and a six off Ahmed to take RR past 100 in the 15th over.
